Why such a bias?

Why are conservative or right wingers allowed to fling insults and troll without consequence while the same behavior from the left gets them banned and their posts deleted without warning?

Re: Why such a bias?

You're going to have to be more specific. I have no idea what you're talking about.

I don't think he can be more specific without calling anyone out.

Edited for stupidity.

Not everyone, just me.

That's the second time I did that.



Sorry.

Third times a charm!??!

Re: Why such a bias?

I have a problem with people being "banned" for speaking their mind, regardless of their political leaning. I didn't give 31 years of my life defending freedom so folks could be censored. You have the right to speak your mind and you have the right to feel offended or outraged at the expressed thoughts of others.

That's a pretty broad generalization since you generally don't know people's political leanings. Are you talking about one specific person?

No it isnt and no Im not... It is very EASY to get a general sense of a persons political leanings based on how they post about a number of subjects. Its also very easy to see the bias in how punishment for offenses is doled out or not doled out.

Wow ... considering the content and subject matter of this site, I hardly believe there is a bias.

What do I know though? I'm a conservative ... but I'm also for gay marriage, protecting the environment and supporting green industries, reforming corporate taxes among other ideas typically supported by progressives. I am also agnostic and think creation is a bunch of garbage ... I am a science guy. I've invested time and money to help build homes for the poor here in the US, Mexico and the DR; I donate time to the Junior Achievement League among other volunteer organizations to help the needy. Weird.

Re: Why such a bias?

A whole lot of what determines who gets banned is based on who gets reported on.

Yeah, there is one conservative poster who needs a banning. (That from a right leaning guy.)

If you see something that is attacking somebody, hit the little red triangle and report it.

I have no idea what poster you are talking about. So I cannot even read to find out what was said.

I've seen people on both (or all) sides of the political spectrum insult and troll without consequences.

What you fought for was the Constitution which limits the government's right to censor.

This is a private forum. There is no government involvement here. The owners of private forums can ban anyone they want for any reason.

You also fought for the rights of people who own their own property (this forum is private property) and to use it and control it as they wish.

Anyone come into my home and say something that I disagree strongly with, they might just get thrown out on their ear. A college student of mine found this out when at the end of the semester she showed up with a gift and wanted to discuss how wonderful the KKK was. I guess she thought that having blue eyes and blond hair I might just join up. Instead she and her gift were shown the door. Same thing here on this forum. The owners can ban anyone they want.

OMG, you are a conservative? How can that be?

People try to label others ... right, left, conservative, liberal.. Why? Because when they can put someone in a box, then it's easy to dismiss them.

Re: Why such a bias?

I'm just me.

Conservative? Liberal? haha no.

Who was banned for their liberal views? I am not sure.

I just don't like when people want to use religion to control the world.
